THE MANCHESTER Bee has joined the fight against polio.

The Crocus Bee was bought and paid for by Art With A Heart (AWAH) and the artwork designed by children at Oldfield Brow Primary School,

The Crocus Bee is painted purple on behalf of “purple4polio”, a cause supported by Rotary clubs around the world.

It is part of a week of events aimed at raising awareness of the “purple4polio” campaign.

Altrincham Town Hall has also been lit up in purple this week to support the cause.

The Rotary Crocus Bee is on display this week at Optieye in Regent Road, Altrincham.
